On the promotional trail for her new film with Tom Holland Chaos Walking, the conversation with star Daisy Ridley inevitably turned to Star Wars and Force powers, specifically a power she shares with Grogu, Force healing. A fan of The Mandalorian, Ridley believes our really little green friend Baby Yoda has a distinct advantage over Rey.

When I jokingly asked how she felt about Rey and Grogu’s Force healing abilities and if she felt it was a competition or a bond, Ridley replied, “Here’s the thing… Baby Yoda is immensely powerful but also Baby Yoda is almost cheating because he’s so sweet that whatever Baby Yoda did you’re like, ‘Aww!’ Whereas I’m a human so I don’t have that. So I feel like Baby Yoda has had an easier time being a Force healer because it’s Baby Yoda being a Force healer. We’re both good in that space but he definitely has cuteness on me.”

We discussed Daisy, Tom and much more on todays 79th episode of Making Tracks, which you can listen to right here.
